The Union Advantage
- Published: Friday, 08 February 2013 17:45
The most accurate barometer of the union advantage uses median wage - where half of all workers make more than the amount and half of all workers make less. It gives a better picture of how workers are doing. Using median wage, the national union advantage is $6.80 an hour. Statistics Canada, uses average wages.
The Canadian trade union movement is all about improving the everyday lives of all working people. It's about better wages and benefits. It's about better pensions and vacations.
